A Romantic Night In Edgar Allen Poe’s Home


Did you know that in nearby Michigan there is a place where you can spend a night in a home that would be familiar to historic Americans like Patrick Henry and Edgar Allen Poe, among others? Hidden away behind The Marriott-owned Dearborn Inn is a series of replicas of the homes of some famous Americans. The brainchild of Henry Ford, they were originally built to house visiting VIP guests to the sprawling Ford Headquarters. Today, they serve as luxury cottages for people wanting an unusual place to spend a night. (Rumor has it that one of Henry Ford’s sons used one of these cottages as a place to meet a famous girlfriend). If you are looking for some place that is really out of the ordinary for a Valentine’s Day getaway this might be just the place. It’s this week’s Classic One Tank Trip.
